Drake bested previous record-holder Adele for this spectacular Billboard Music Awards record

As is imaginably the case on a regular basis, it's a good day to be Drake. Right now, he's probably sleeping and cuddling his 13 — count 'em: 13 — Billboard Music Awards. That's a lot of awards. Drake made BBMAs history by winning 13 awards in one night, the most any artist has won at the show in a single night.

I guess we can all thank Drake and his brilliant album Views for this glowing success. Because of his work on (in my opinion) a truly spectacular album, he took home awards for: Top Male Artist, Top Rap Artist, Artist of the Year, Top Streaming Artist and Top Rap Tour, just to name a few. The man was truly on a hot streak last night and boy, did he know it.

At the end of the night, when he was accepting the Artist of the Year Award, Drake brought his entire entourage onstage. Included in that entourage were Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Drake's father, Dennis Graham. It was a celebratory moment for the rapper, who told Adele not to worry because she'll be able to reclaim the title once she dropped some new music. For now, the glory belongs to Drake.
